I didn't. Going to wait for bargain bin status.

#2 Posted by EveretteScott (1531 posts) -

Another one of these....

#3 Posted by JJOR64 (19065 posts) -

Nope.

#4 Posted by BestUsernameEver (4825 posts) -

yes.......

#5 Posted by Galiant (2195 posts) -

No, I'm not paying for something I knew would be garbage.

#6 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

I would rather watch my balls play tennis than buy that game.

#7 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13629 posts) -

I rented it! 

#8 Posted by Willin (1285 posts) -

Hit the nail on the head.

#10 Posted by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

Nope, even as a huge fan of the, er... original trilogy? I even warned friends against buying it, but they didn't listen, and now they're regretting it.

I love Gearbox, but this just isn't them.

#11 Posted by Portis (1283 posts) -

Nah, fuck that. I'll grab it for 15 or 20, though.

#12 Posted by JTB123 (1044 posts) -

I rented it. I never planned on buying it to see if it was good.

#13 Posted by Yanngc33 (4461 posts) -

I forked out 90 for the balls of steel edition, and yes I do regret it

#14 Posted by harvey_the_pooka (271 posts) -

Hell no! If I find it for 10€ in a bargain bin then I´ll get it but right now...fuck no

#15 Posted by SlasherMan (1725 posts) -

Absolutely not. I don't think I'd buy it for free. I also don't think it's necessarily as bad as everyone seems to make it out to be, but it's still not a game I care enough for to actually ever play. Too many good games out there.

#16 Edited by YoThatLimp (1938 posts) -

I actually spent $110 on the Balls of Steel edition and do not regret it at all.

To add to this:

I am an Old School Duke Nukem fan, and have been waiting for this since I was 8. I got a cool little Duke Statues and some random duke stuff to share with my other Duke 3d obsessed friend. The game itself, well, not great. It is fine for a single play through, and I am glad to have played through it, I just never want to play through it again.

#17 Posted by probablytuna (3822 posts) -

Na, I passed on the game. Was never a big fan of Duke Nukem.

#18 Posted by ReyGitano (2467 posts) -

I wouldn't watch an endurance run of that game, let alone pay money to experience it.

#19 Posted by Ksaw (353 posts) -

I was actually kind of interested until I saw the quick look. That game looks terrible.

#20 Posted by valrog (3648 posts) -

No way in hell.

#21 Posted by Smashlampjaw (220 posts) -

No, I got it for 100 (Balls of Steel edition) and made a paper-craft Duke Nukem. lol

#22 Edited by Clenchmask (63 posts) -

I did. So what? Wanna fight about it?  
And I've played it a lot more than Portal 2, which I have yet to beat.  
So yeah it's more fun to me personally than P2.
Just sayin.

My thoughts exactly. We get it: you didn't like the game, it's not good. There's no reason to create a new topic every time someone has to say it again.

#25 Posted by Vexxan (4614 posts) -

Nope, waiting for price drop...otherwise I'd never play it.

#26 Posted by mfpantst (2574 posts) -

bargains are for pussies.

Yeah but... I'd give away any game to witness my balls play a sport...
#28 Posted by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

Nope... I will buy it when it's on sale.

#29 Posted by MaFoLu (1859 posts) -

I spent about a hundred bucks on the Balls of Steel edition.

Totally worth it.

#30 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

I'm waiting for a good deal on the balls of steel edition.

#31 Posted by lockwoodx (2479 posts) -

Hell yes, tho I'll assume most of you will use the "I wasn't born yet" excuse.

#32 Posted by TekZero (2691 posts) -

Dude, I don't spend $60 on any game.  I usually play games that are at least a year or two old.   I get em all at $20 because I don't see the point in buying a game at full price when if you're a little patient, the game will drop in price. 

#33 Posted by Pinworm45 (4088 posts) -

Steam Preorder was cancelled in the eleventh hour. Played it at my friends.

I'm exactly the same.

Yeah, and the funny thing is, I wouldn't spent $20 to play DNF. 
#36 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

Indeed I did, I played it once, not since then have I played it.

What about full contact foot ball?  Or knife fighting? That's a sport in some places. Might be kind of pain full...
#38 Posted by TooWalrus (13256 posts) -

Nope- I payed $100 for it. No regrets, even though that game is mad boring.

#39 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Don't think I'll ever pick it up. Maybe when it is less than $10?

#40 Posted by cornwalliz (214 posts) -

Pre-ordered it on steam....so yes

#41 Posted by SJSchmidt93 (4899 posts) -

Haha... no.

#42 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

Nope, work did though so I could play through it and then give my opinion on it. I couldn't even get through the game before I gave it to someone else and said "You review it" . Man I wish I was 8 again, back when Duke 3D was "awesome" in my stupid little mind

Honestly, I think that would be pretty awesome.

That would at least be exciting.

#45 Posted by TanoPrime (180 posts) -

No, I went grocery shopping.

#46 Posted by FritzDude (2273 posts) -

I shat it out of my anus for free. Played with it for a while, but then i realized that i was playing with crap, so i threw it in the toilet where it belongs.  

#47 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

i might rent it for a day for $2 from red box

#48 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

no, i did play it at my friends. it's pretty funny stuff i thought.

#49 Posted by Maelstrom (38 posts) -

Nope. I was planning to get Duke on day one but that Randy Pitchford sheister turned me off of it with his constant hyping of Duke Nukem Forever. He gave off that Peter Molyneux stench...you know the kind where someone is trying WAY too hard to sell you something and promises things with all of the sincerity of a career politician. Thankfully I went with my instinct and was apparently saved from a true turd. I'll try the demo when it comes out for the PC to those of us who didn't buy into Pitchford's bs and preorder Duke.

#50 Posted by cosi83 (422 posts) -

No way, I rent game for free by cleverly abusing free trials 
 
It was an ok ride for a rent but If i had paid 40 pound I would have been pissed!
